Year 3

MidSummer’s Night Dream


In Year 3, the children studied the – Midsummer’s Night Dream.

The Midsummer’s Night Dream is a comedy written by William Shakespeare

and is made up of several plots that revolve around the marriage of Theseus and Hippolyta. One plot involves a conflict between four Athenian lovers.

As well as reading the story, the pupils also retold the story in their own words to each other. During the week, they completed some drama work. As part of the drama work, the children created freeze frames to show the parts of scenes within the book. After completing the freeze frames, the children then wrote descriptions of the main characters.
